Sunday Sleaze Special

acrb

Cheeky. Interesting for the lawyers too. This one will run and run.

Meanwhile the Sunday Telegraph reports Patrick Mercer convinced Keith Vaz, Valerie Vaz, Julien Brazier, Mark Field and Fabian Hamilton to join his Fiji APPG. And the Sunday Times has stung Lords Laird, Cunningham & MacKenzie.

“Lord Cunningham, Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate and Lord Laird offered to become paid advocates for a firm pushing for new laws to benefit its business. They also said they could set up an all party parliamentary group as a lobbying vehicle.”

No wonder Labour were so quiet on Friday.

          I don’t think a Homosexual affair would be much of scandal these days as everyone has moved on. What would really upset Cameron (and the old guard association members at the same time) would be if a Conservative Minister were having an Homosexual affair with a Lib Dem Minister.
          The Homosexual element would be secondary really, it would be the act of union between a Conservative and a Lib Dem that would cause the real issues, especially if it allowed for pillow talk.

      The Daily Mail say David Cameron was “stunned” and publish a photo of him with his wife Samantha. That’s a very old newspaper trick. Remember Jack Straw’s son getting busted for drugs, and Prince Charles’s gay lover Michael Facwett. Lots of photos in both cases.

      The Torygraph say “it is believed that David Cameron has been told about the affair – which has also caused those involved personal distress“.

      It’s obvious that if two people have an affair that they want kept quiet, and it leaks out, then they’re going to be caused distress. The above sentence got ‘lawyered’, and instead of of “those involved”, the original phrasing was “him”. That is, it said that the affair has caused Cameron personal distress. Repeat, *personal* distress.

    The suggestion is that it will be so damaging for Cameron, not “for the government” or “for the Conservative Party”. If it were damaging to the party, the impact could be forgotten by the time of the election. If its damaging to Cameron then he might no longer lead the party.

    So could be related to Cameron’s judgment. It may be an affair that won’t be of enormous interest outside the Westminster village, but could trigger a move against Cameron within the party.

    What judgment has he exercised recently, which upset some in the party? Which judgment related to matters of policy? How about the appointment of an old Etonian to head the policy unit?

    And who might the woman be? If it were SamCam that would be difficult personally, but why would it derail policy initiatives? A Murdoch connection would create greater political difficulties.

    “JoJo and Beks” probably wouldn’t create a huge scandal around the country, but it would enrage backbenchers who already question Cameron’s judgment.

    If the initials “acrb” are indicative, then one might speculate that Andy Coulson and Rebekah Brooks may possibly fit the bill. That would indeed be embarrassing for Dave, in view of his Downing Street appointment of Coulson and his friendship with Rebekah.

    The “political complication” alluded to by the MoS might refer to the issue of post-Leveson press regulation, which would certainly be affected, in ways that can only be surmised at this stage. It is an issue that the Mail group have been campaigning on, hence their interest in breaking the story.

    Just speculating, of course. However, if the “ac” intials turn out to refer to Alastair Campbell — now that really would get interesting…
